Version 1.2.1170 of Fallen London gets right to the heart of the problems many have had with the game.

Arguably the biggest success story is that the server systems have been improved, meaning that you should no longer receive any 'server offline' messages. Even if you do, you'll be able to play the game with old content while you wait.

Loading times have also had a rocket booster placed up their backside and should be much faster. Players will experience the same loading times on their first ever download, but from then on should see be able to get through the game much quicker.

In addition, Living stories which fired multiple times have been fixed, and there should be no more crashes while travelling around London via the map.

Add to that a revamped profile page which should no longer crash, alterable text sizes, and the ability to edit Mantelpiece and Scrapbook, this is a very successful patch.

Google Auth has even been added to the browser game, so if you'd prefer to play that way instead of your mobile, you can log in as normal there.

We gave Fallen London a Silver Award, claiming that its rich world will find a way to get under your skin. However some of the technical issues listed above did spoil our enjoyment.

This patch definitely is a welcome sight and we thoroughly recommend you check the game out on iOS. But if you do need further convincing, watch our video preview of the game below.
